Summary

Sir Hamar and Lady Margery Greenwood arriving for the opening of the Ulster parliament...We have not had a photograph from the Hogan Wilson Collection for quite a while. We know the names of two of the people and I am looking forward to being acquainted with some of the others we see here. ..From today's contributions we learned a little more about the location (likely the northern side of Belfast City Hall ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Belfast_City_Hall ) ) and main subjects (the Viscount and Margery Greenwood ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hamar_Greenwood,_1st_Viscount_Greenwood ) ). The formation of the Parliament of Northern Ireland was a major event towards the end of the war of independence, and Greenwood (then "Chief Secretary for Ireland") was a controversial but significant political figure at the time.......Photographer: W. D.
